What We Do

Therapeutic Learning Center

Mr. Newcomb, the Principal Bright Steps Forward is also a fully accredited Therapeutic Learning Center for children with special needs. We serve children from Kindergarten through 12th Grade, and what sets our center apart is our ability to provide intensive ABA, PT, OT and speech therapies onsite.

What We Do

The Spons'a-kid program


Bright Steps Forward has created a unique new fundraising program for families worldwide who cannot afford the myriad of therapies needed for their child. Our concept is simple: we create a customized fundraising page for each child where they can tell their compelling story and set their fundraising goal. Parents then share the link to the page with family, friends and social networks who are encouraged to support the cause with a donation and help the campaign go viral.
